DIYSpiked Watermelon Popsicles

watermelon1

Hi guys! Ashley from Sugar and Cloth here again, back with an amazing recipe to beat the end-of-summer heat! Just when you think watermelon couldn’t make the summer any better, they go and get a little makeover and come back looking cute as ever … and with a splash of rum. I don’t know about you, but that’s just as good as a cabana boy in my book.

These spiked watermelon popsicles are sweet, refreshing, and fully equipped with a clever little rind drip tray built in!

Ingredients, yields 12 pops:
  • 2.5 lbs of fresh, seedless watermelon (basically half of a small melon)
  • 4 tablespoons (or 2 oz.) of watermelon Monin syrup
  • 8 oz. of light rum (or the same amount of orange juice for non-alcoholic)
  • splash of Sprite
  • small, rectangular cuts of rind the same size as your popsicle molds

Cut the watermelon away from the rind and blend it in a blender. Pour it into a bowl or a pitcher with a spout to make it easy to pour into the popsicle molds, then add the rest of the ingredients and stir. ​Pour the mixture into the molds, and insert the popsicle sticks through the rind by making a small slit with a knife. Be sure that the rind fits into the mold just enough to touch the mixture (to be able to freeze into place), but isn’t so small that it falls through the top opening. Then freeze the pops overnight.

Before trying to remove the pops from the mold, run the tips of the popsicles in the mold under warm water for about 20 seconds. The popsicles will have a soft texture (as does watermelon), so pulling too hard on them will make them break if you’re not careful.  Before serving, you can drizzle a little dash of sugar for extra punch and cuteness!

summer day dresses

Slip Dresses A nod to the simplicity of the ’90s, this style is perfect to slip on and go. Simple and feminine, it is an easy style to take from day to night as well! Add your favorite strappy heels for a look that is perfect for a night on the town.

Maxi Dresses Beachy and breezy, the maxi dress is long on style AND comfort! With billowing fabric you can stay cool even on the hottest summer day. This style works well for days at the beach, summer weddings (if the style and details are dressy enough), or even a weekend brunch!

Skater Dresses With a fitted top and a flirty skirt, the skater dress is the life of the party! Depending on the fabric and details, this is the kind of summer dress you can wear to any occasion from parties, lunch, dinner, dates, and more! Choose longer and more conservative styles for work and special occasions (such as weddings and family outings), or embrace the stretchier, open back styles for a date or music festival!
